Governments at all levels are increasingly taking a proactive, department-wide approach to cybersecurity. They’re starting to invest in emerging technologies like artificial intelligence to supplement their modest staff sizes. They’re also forging cyber partnerships across state lines, marrying security with DevOps, and finding creative ways to attract and train cyber talent.

In four lessons, we explore those key advancements, as well as specific examples from federal, state and local agencies that are putting these approaches into practice. Rather than rehash the basics of cybersecurity, we dive into meatier topics like DevSecOps and machine learning in cybersecurity to give learners practical examples and tips for adopting similar approaches at their organizations. Specifically, we’ll explain how to leverage managed services for enhanced security in government.

This course was informed by Dave Young, Senior Vice President for Strategic Government at CenturyLink. For more insights into leveraging managed services, check out this Government IT Services Buying Guide.
